Practice description

Hey, I’m Emily and my pronouns are she/they. I am an approachable, down to earth and compassionate therapist. Working from a Person-Centred philosophy, the essence of my approach is to work with you in a warm, supportive, non-judgmental relationship. It’s in this kind of relationship that you can reconnect with yourself, find your voice and develop a clearer understanding of any changes you need to make. Sessions are guided by you, and together we’ll explore the parts of your experience and life that might feel painful, stuck, or that need paying attention to. While it might feel a bit uncomfortable at first, directly addressing and exploring things like this with someone non-judgemental and validating (rather than leaving it in the background) can be useful. Therapy is a space away from the external noise of others’ advice and opinions to hear yourself and understand more clearly what your own wisdom may be telling you. I will hold space for us to reflect, process and make sense of what’s happened to you, where you are right now, and where you hope to move forwards to. New insights and ways of understanding yourself can emerge in therapy, which can become the first steps towards making the changes in your life that you’re looking for. Quite often, when you tune into yourself with curiosity and compassion, the answers and resources you need can be found.
